    Last two of the day and they are my favorite. PM me if you want the full size photo. They book look great on my background on my IPhone. I enjoy stoping for a second and taking cool pictures like this

    how do you estimate how much mulch you'll need for a given job? and how do you price it?

    American- It kinda depends on the mulch type and job. I can eyeball and come within 1/2 yard for regular hardwood and dyed black hardwood. But when I am doing play ground mulch (rubber) I measure out the area and do the conversion that way and also for pine bark mulch the same too. I measure out those jobs because they're more costly and I don't want to short myself on jobs.

    Hope that helps

    I buy bulk 95% of time and around here I have been charging anywhere from 55-$70 per yard installed, so the price of mulch is included in that. Everyman should be able to put down 2 yards an hour
